SOSODIKON HILL, KUNDASANG SABAH
Saya akui, ini adalah bukit paling mudah yang pernah saya daki. Hanya 20 minit atau kurang dan 'hiking' itu selesai.  Kami tiba di Kundasang masih awal pagi, matahari baru mulai tersenyum, menyentuh permukaan dunia, merengkuh jantung hatiku.

SOSODIKON HILL, KUNDASANG SABAH
Oleh kerana perjalanan ini kurang mengundang lelah dan peluh, maka, saya menyempatkan menulis kata-kata  sambil sesekali disentuh gerimis alam. Menulis melalui memori lalu, cernaannya terlihat di sini.
SOSODIKON HILL, KUNDASANG SABAH
Menulis adalah untuk tidak berfikir tetapi, pergi mengalir bersama kata-kata, bersama udara. Kebanyakan orang terlalu banyak berfikir tentang tulisannya. Apa yang dia tulis dan kemana tulisan itu membawanya. Seharusnya, mungkin, tidak seperti itu. Mungkin tidak perlu terlalu banyak yang kita fikirkan. Mungkin kita harus keluarkan sebahagian beban fikiran kita dan mendakap dunia dengan tulus apa adanya. 
SOSODIKON HILL, KUNDASANG SABAH
Tulisan ini tidak akan formal, hanya bersahaja. Ini adalah 2019, sedikit beza cara mempersembahkan kata-kata. Bukit Sosodikon lebih mengundang inspirasi daripada lelah, lebih menciptakan kebahagiaan daripada membuang banyak tenaga seperti memanjat bukit-bukit yang lain. Sebenarnya bukan tentang lokasi semata tetapi, lebih kepada kebersamaan dalam menciptakan kebahagiaan. Kadang mendung membuat suhu udara turun dan padam diwajah. Namun, kaki-kaki roda terus naik dan turun mengikuti gelombang jalan. Diterbangkan awan dari satu koordinat ke koordinat lain. Hanya untuk menciptakan kenangan, menjadi sebuah peta dalam kalbu, sebuah geografi di dalam akal.

Oleh kerana perjalanan ini terlalu mudah, bahkan anak kecil di bawah lima tahun juga mampu berjalan disini, maka, mungkin lokasi ini lebih sesuai menjadi lokasi fotografi. Ada waktu kabus menyelimuti kita seakan-akan kita hidup dalam dunia kapas dan fantasi.

 SOSODIKON HILL, KUNDASANG
Alright, let's go, grab your shoes, some water, a sweater and follow me. You won't regret it. And if you do...well, too bad for you !
SOSODIKON HILL, KUNDASANG
So, here was my story on last Saturday ~ went to Sosodikon Hill, Kundasang Sabah. These hill are located about 5 kilometre from Kundasang town, on the same road to Desa Dairy Farm and Mount Kinabalu Golf Park. The right turn to Sosodikon Hill is located barely 50m away from left to the well known Desa Dairy Farm. But, the road to the base of the hill is narrow and can be rough. One can choose to leave their car just off the main road, and leg it from there. The actual climb takes only 20 minutes or less. What awaits you is the unique pyramid shaped hills to your south and the mesmerizing Mount Kinabalu to your north. Yes, on both right and left sides, you'll see the beautiful valleys of Kundasang. 
SOSODIKON HILL, KUNDASANG
Walk my way through the hill and remind myself that we are such a small thing on this planet, that everything we do as an impact. Mother Nature will win ! you better take care of her.
SOSODIKON HILL, KUNDASANG
Sosodikon Hill is good for a short hike in Kundasang with a majestic view of Mt Kinabalu (if weather permits), pyramid hill and Kundasang town. Sosodikon hill(s) consist of two hills and is easy for kids.  RM 3 fees is charged per adult and RM2 for children under 12.
SOSODIKON HILL, KUNDASANG
Yes, take a break, like, for real ! And taking your time allows you to reconnect with all the little things life has to offer to you that may come unnoticed in your everyday life. May it be the calm and silence of these landscape or the sound of the wind going through the trees. You refocus yourself on what is important to you, that connection with the environment, realizing that happiness is as simple as this. 
SOSODIKON HILL, KUNDASANG
And so I am fully ready for adventure...to be continued in the next article !

REVIEW: PRIVATE DRIVER SERVICES / CHARTER KOTA KINABALU SABAH

11.1.19
www.cla-travel.asia ~ Private Driver Services / Charter Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

Let's explore the second largest state in Malaysia, Sabah below the wind ! Today's topic is about the private driver services in Kota Kinabalu or also known as KK. There are many places on the web where you can hire a private car service in Kota Kinabalu. But, it's a lottery. You can't know whether it is a trustworthy and good website or not, or will you be getting a service or not.
PRIVATE DRIVER SERVICES / CHARTER KOTA KINABALU
If you are doing a day tour, Private Driver Services/Charter KK is the best and highly recommended!  The driver will bring you the the destinations that beautiful, famous and just perfect ! or maybe, you have an itinerary ? Just give them the itinerary and the driver will drive you to the places that you wanted to go.

Why you need a private driver ? 
Here I list out the advantages of having them on your trip
  • Convenience, you don't have to walk around so much or having to figure out how to get from one place to another
  • Comfort. You don't need to queue to get on the taxi or public transport. You can just sit in the car comfortably. 
  • Fixed price. You know how much you are paying for. Compared to taxis, you don't know how much it would cost to get you from one point to another. Honestly, the taxis fares is much expensive than grab or private car. I'm not complaining, I'm telling you the truth.
  • You won't get lost. As much as the transportation system is efficient, it can also be confusing. There's always a possibility of taking the wrong public transport or getting off at the wrong station and you can get lost. I mean, it wasting your time.
  • Save time. You don't need to take the time to ask around or search which taxis to take, wait for buses to come, or walk from station to the destination.
  • Freedom movement. This is my priority while traveling especially with my family. Compared to taking bus tours or group tours, you can choose where to go and when to go.
 Be smart and happy traveling !

EVENT : PITIMUNGAN SINAKAGON GONTUONG + SONDOROI

www.cla-travel.asia - Family Day

Happy new year ! Here's to 2019 ! I definitely know I wanted to say a huge thank you for an amazing year 2018 ! That's a given but that being said, I'll say it anyway ! THANK YOU SO MUCH ! Your support, comments and kind words mean so much and I can't tell you how grateful we are.
FAMILY DAY
THE SIBLINGS
So, long short story about the family day of Mr and Mrs Gontuong (my late grandparents) which held on 28th December 2018. For me, a family day or a family reunion is more of a gathering of the diaspora. This is when you make a point of inviting every collateral relative no matter how distant the connection, or how far away they live, for a chance to reconnect with people they haven't seen in years, and meet the new additions. yay ! This is when the second and third cousins get invited, as well as the first cousins. I know, family reunion is much more inclusive of a wider range of relatives, say, all descendants of a specific couple, usually 3 or more generations back. There can be hundreds of people at such a reunion, just like our recently family reunion.
FAMILY DAY
When I saw the whole family gathered together and how cramped they were, I realized that my family IS that big. And again, I asked 'is our family really this big?'. Yes ! and I felt sorry didn't talk to many people on that day because I was fairly shy (lol). I may not know them all, but they are still my family, I love them, and they love me...yeah, I mean please love me back. haha.
FAMILY DAYFAMILY DAY
It was a joyful day. Yes we missed 'tapa and tina' but could feel them with us. We knew they were smiling and enjoying all of us together.  Thank you for teaching us the importance of a close and loving family. It doesn't have expensive to be fun. 
FAMILY DAY
Dear cousins, especially Pst Norijah, thanks a lot for being the 'pengerusi majlis', you rock !  all chefs for the yummylicious foods -- ahh, kari tuhau masih melekat dilidah, thank you to all sponsors who sponsored the gifts especially for the lucky name. Thank you for the rice cooker and fan ! we---the family of Anthony, the eldest son of my grandparents love it very much !
FAMILY DAY
THE 3RD GENERATIONS
Yes, I have to admit it. Families are living farther apart than ever before. Yes, we have the technology especially WhatApps to stay connected, but it that really enough ? It is no longer the era where cousins are spending entire school holidays balik kampung jumpa nenek. Sometimes we are lucky to even get together during the holidays.  So, thank you for the memories created on Pitimungan Sinakagon Gontuong + Sondoroi 2018'. 

God is good all the time and all the time God is good.
